New sprites!! (Eli is unfinished and I might be redoing his sprite. His legs look WAY too big.)

Nice sprite collection! You have a lot of supernatural characters. Seems like fun. :) I like stories where the main character can choose to be good or bad. Can't wait to see more.

Thanks so much! :D

I'll hopefully be posting more screenshots and CGs soon. As well as finally finish reconstructing the opening post.

Hello everyone, so last night I received some bad news about my health (kidney issues) and am facing a decent hospital stay. This means that most of my budget for the project has been wiped out to pay for my expenses. On top of all of that, my roommate will be leaving for Peru which means I need to put effort into finding a new roommate and place to live as I cannot afford our current location on my own. Thank you so much for your support and I hope to get back to work on this in a few months or so.

Hello everyone! Thank you for your kind words. It looks like my roommate situation has become much better and apartment searching is underway. I plan to get back to work on Lunescara in February 2016 as until then I will be too busy working on real life issues. So... have a Chibi Cora as an apology?

@FrozenApple66-

As others have said, I am also sorry to hear about your health problems. Will be hoping that your treatment will make them go away and that you will be back better than ever. Health comes first . . . we can wait for the game (it looks like it will be very interesting)!

1. What do you think of the style change?
I appreciate your style very much. It's creative and unique, which - in my opinion - is critical and essential to catch any player's attention once playing the game, as style can contribute a lot. Really, I think it's good. However, perfection doesn't really exist; there's always room for improvements!

2. Who is your favorite character? Why?
Hm... I think I'll say Klaus and Midnight catch my interest equally. First of all, their character designs are very well drawn. Secondly, their personality traits are reasonable and happen to be my favorites. If there's a runner-up, I'd say Vladimir! His character design is great and creative too.

3. What do you think of the plot? Does the idea of two separate arcs interest you?
I think the plot is consistent and not too confusing. It's clear and creative (it caught my attention). As for the second question, I think it depends. I like the idea, as long as it's not confusing, because sometimes this can end up in a mess and confusion if not done the right way, but I still support that idea!

4. How important is a happy ending to you? Or is bitter-sweet acceptable?
I think both are acceptable, so you should probably consider making both kinds of endings. After all, variety is always what people who read visual novels typically want.

5. This will be a commercial game ($10-15). What are your thoughts?
Now, I'm fine with this being a commercial game, but the pricing is something that depends on how many characters you write stories for and how long their stories are. Also the image quality, artwork, CGs and BGM. If you plan to make it $10-15, then I would suggest putting your utmost effort on grammar, the actual story itself (make sure it's long so that people will be willing to pay that much for your stories) and the artwork. It takes a lot of dedication. However, otherwise I think it's reasonable.

6. If you have any other comments I'd be happy to hear them!
I'll be happy to play this game whenever it releases (if I can download it, that is).
